Big Boots Girl by Phindy

It's PHFriday...and....time for another PHindy's place challenge! Use buttons or brads on your card! Here is my girl called "Big Boots Girl" and she is wanting to help somebody out! ha ha! I only have one brad on my card (looks like a screw) and I think that is all it needs. She is colored with copics and I used one of my EK border punches (chain) DP is Cosmo: twist and shout- yep- a little wild looking! I also cb it and the sentiment is computer generated. On a rather serious note.....Phindy's sister Gerry is in the hospital and she is not doing too well. Phindy is with her- so - we are all praying for her recovery. Hope you will too! The power of prayer is an awesome thing. TFL - stop by and check out what the dt did and get in on the challenge. Remember- use a Phindy image! Have a good weekend. :)

A card for the City Crafter Challenge Blog

One of my Bloggin Buddies -Linda -from My Happy Place asked me if I would like to be a Guest designer for the City Crafter Challenge Blog. The challenge is to use: 1 ribbon, 2 papers and 3 flowers.
Well- I immediately thought of the new images I won over at Bugaboo stamps and picked out "Pansy". I had this dp DEEP in my stash! ha ha! But it did prove to be a great color of flowers to match. Pansy is colored with shades of my BV copics and I sewed the vine on the side on my machine with no thread. The flowers were made with scraps of dp cut and crumbled up (see splitcoast). The sentiment is computer generated. Take a look over at City Crafter and get in on the fun! I do believe there is some candy to be won! TFL!

It is how I feel tho- since my dds still have me doing their laundry quite often!! (29 & 30) I colored this a while back, therefore I dont know all the copics I used. Several! Anyone out there old enough to remember a "ringer washer" ??... (wringer??) I do. :( DP is from that cute pad called The Mod Retro stack by DCWV at JoAnns'. Hope this gave you a little chuckle today!

"Monochrome Coloring"

It is the 15th of the month and time for a new Copic Creation's challenge! This is "monochrome" coloring- or coloring with shades of one color. Now YOU can use any one color- I decided to go with the black n white look...almost like a photo. The "w" colors may have been a better choice altho I dont have them. So- the "c" colors is what I used. The sponsor is "Paper Make up Stamps" and she really has some sweet images! I used the

set called "OO La La, Corset and Sentiments" and new BG dp called Cappella . The lace is from JoAnns I think. The sentiments with this set are just perfect! Take a LOOK HERE to see them all. Dont forget to check out what the other girls on the dt blog did....They are really QUITE AMAZING!!
